4 photos of Saturday's huge, bright SuperMoon

Click on image to enlarge.

On Saturday, the Moon was the closest it's been to Earth (orbital perigee) in 18 years. All over the Earth it shone startlingly huge and bright.

Except here, where it was a dull looking blob behind the cloud. I'm sure it was spectacular.

Same in CH until about 4 in the mooring. Never seen it so big ! Incidentally I just saw a documentary about Gallilei, he would have been envious. next time the moon will be that big will be in 2016, then it will be the same distance plus 56 km closer. Ha !
